Vet time
by: Shelly

Please take your pet to the vet as soon as possible. The wounds need to be cleaned thoroughly. You are not likely to be able to do that. The shell probably needs to be repaired as well. And again, this is not a job for an amateur.

A vet with experience treating reptiles would be best, but any vet is better than no vet.

Keep it slow and steady.
